The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has extended the deadline to submit applications for the fourth edition of the Air Cargo Sustainability Awards. Applicants now have until September 12th to get their entry in.

The competition aims to recognize outstanding businesses and industry initiatives leading the way to a more sustainable air cargo industry. CHAMP Cargosystems is sponsoring the awards.

TIACA is calling for applications from start-ups, small businesses and corporations that demonstrate solutions and practices that align with the eight key objectives for a sustainable air cargo found in TIACA’s Sustainability Roadmap. The eight goals are:

  • Decarbonize
  • Eliminate waste
  • Protect biodiversity
  • Support local economies and communities
  • Improve lives and well being
  • Improve efficiencies and profitability
  • Attract, retain and develop employees
  • Build and nurture partnerships

The Start-Up and Small Business Prize will recognize and encourage young growing as well as small businesses building their presence in the air cargo industry. The winner will take home US$10,000 and two runners-up will each pocket $ 2,500.

The Corporate Prize will recognize an established corporation, an international organization or a scholar with a long-standing presence in the cargo community.

All shortlisted candidates will also receive access to exclusive TIACA events and speaking opportunities, and publicity in TIACA’s communication and networking opportunities.

“To date, we have received many quality applications for this year’s awards and we look forward to receiving additional applications during this extended period, in particular, I urge start-up enterprises to submit and to use the awards programs as a springboard to promote their creative innovations and solutions,” said Glyn Hughes, director general and chairman of TIACA.A panel of independent industry and sustainability experts will select the winner of the corporate category and three finalists in the start-up/small business category. The finalists will be invited to present their solutions at the Air Cargo Forum, in Miami, November 8-10, 2022.
